    i was trying to get rid of a cockroach in my home. i seen it running under the fridge, so i sprayed some insectizide under the fridge... seconds after a small (baby?) lizard came crawling out from there. seems like hes been hit by the insect spray. he seems to have problems with moving and just keeps staying on the floor in front of the fridge.
    is there anything i can do for him?
    the only thing i came up with so far was to spray some wather on him. maybe it helps wash off the insecticide.. or does that make it worse?
    please let me know if you have an idea. dont want the poor gecko to die.

    Rinsing might help, but to be honest a lot of pesticides are quite a bit more toxic to reptiles than the bugs they are meant to kill. I take it you live somewhere where such lizards are common? Sounds like some type of house gecko, they tend to be smaller.
